Lance Bass says NSYNC was “scared” to release ‘No Strings Attached’

Rodin Eckenroth/WireImage Lance Bass admits that NSYNC went into their blockbuster 2000 album, No Strings Attached, with a sense of trepidation. In an interview with Us Weekly, Lance reveals that at the time of the album's release, the band was embroiled in a legal battle with late record producer and manager Lou Pearlman, who was later the subject of the 2019 documentary The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story, focusing on the creation of his Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors out of more than $1 billion. Lance says the release of No Strings Attached came at a "crazy time" in the group's life as they were trying to part ways with Pearlman while capitalizing on the success of their RIAA Diamond-certified debut album. “I was very young. I think I was 19 years old or 18 years old at the time, so I didn’t really know what the hell I was doing," Lance explains. "But I knew that we had such success with the first album that the second album is your make it or break it ..

Louis Tomlinson jokingly calls out Liam Payne for not answering his phone

Dave J Hogan/Dave J Hogan/Getty Images) Word of the wise: When Louis Tomlinson calls you, you better pick up or face the consequences. The British singer took exception when his old One Direction bandmate, Liam Payne, was not answering his calls and, as punishment, put him on blast on social media. On Thursday, Liam took to his Instagram stories to show off his new haircut and painting of the late Prince Philip around the same time Louis was trying to get him to pick up the phone. After awhile, Louis decided to troll the "Strip That Down" singer by ratting him out to his 35 million Twitter followers. "I see you on Instagram lad @LiamPayne , answer your phone," Tomlinson tweeted, capping off his call out post with five exclamation points. The 29-year-old singer made it known he was keeping tabs on Liam and followed up in another tweet, "Boss drawing and that but get your priorities straight."

‘All for You’: Janet Jackson’s blockbuster 2001 album turns 20

Virgin Records April 16 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Janet Jackson’s blockbuster seventh studio album, All for You. In honor of the milestone, here are five fascinating facts about the album. 5. Janet made All for You after divorcing René Elizondo Jr., whom she’d secretly married in 1991. He's the guy whose hands were covering her breasts on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1993. Despite the split, her producer, Jimmy Jam, said Janet was optimistic about the future, which is why the album was carefree, fun and upbeat. 4. Janet said All for You is “a suite of songs that helped me move from one emotional level to another.” She added, “I feel free, and there’s nothing more wonderful than freedom.” As MTV noted, the album's two themes were "the liberation that comes with ending a bad relationship, and sex." 3. All for You debuted at number one with the biggest opening sales week of Janet’s career, selling more than 605,000 copies. It’s since sold more than seven..

It’s hard because I’d rather not care about that and just live my life." "We buy clot..

Island Records In her music video for “Dancing with the Devil,” Demi Lovato reenacts the night of her near-fatal overdose in 2018. Now, in a new edition of Vevo Footnotes, we see what went into that process. We learn the video took two days to shoot but six months to prepare. Careful thought went into every detail. “There are no accidents in this video,” says director Michael D. Ratner, who also directed Demi's YouTube documentary of the same name. “From where people are facing to what they bring into frame, or where they are in frame, everything is thought through and has meaning. Demi has 23 tattoos and there are 23 Easter eggs in the video.” Not only did Demi recreate her hair color and outfit from that night, but some of her family members and friends are also represented in the video. “When recreating the night before my overdose some of the actors are wearing clothing to match some of my friends who were there, including Dani Vitale’s white tank top, which is seen in the..

Julia Michaels shares new track from debut album, reveals inspiration behind new songs

Vince Aung Julia Michaels' new album is called Not In Chronological Order because when it comes to the songs on it, it literally isn't. As she tells Euphoria magazine, "I’ve got heartbreak mixed in in the album when I haven’t been heartbroken in two years. I’ve got insecurities at the bottom and I’ve got love at the top and heartbreak in the middle and that’s just not how it is right now, but that’s how it’s been in the past.” The reason Julia hasn't been heartbroken in two years is her boyfriend and duet partner, JP Saxe. After co-writing the Grammy-nominated hit "If the World Was Ending," they collaborated on two songs for the new album: "All Your Exes" and "Little Did I Know." But JP was also the inspiration behind many of Julia's other new songs, especially one called "Orange Magic." “It’s basically just a really funny way of saying that JP is a very magical creature,” she says of that track. “I sound so gross and obsessed, but I totally am.” “I’m just ex..

Is The Weeknd is hanging up his red suit for good?

ABC In every video and at every public appearance The Weeknd made for his hit album After Hours, he wore the same thing: a red suit jacket, black gloves, black shirt, black tie and, occasionally, large sunglasses. But now it appears as though he's officially saying goodbye to that look, and that era. Earlier this week, the Canadian star was named Songwriter of the Year by the performing rights organization ASCAP. On Thursday, he posted a photo on Instagram of his framed ASCAP award. Right below, encased in a very large frame, were the red jacket, shirt, tie, gloves and sunglasses, seemingly signifying that he's been there, done that. Fans reacted in the same way, writing in the comments, "Rip red suit character," "This was an amazing era, farewell after hours," "the red suit retired," and more. However, The Weeknd still has his world tour to come in 2022 -- so he might resurrect the character while singing his After Hours hits like "Blinding Lights." After all, he presuma..

Adam Levine reveals the “Beautiful Mistake” he made while shooting the song’s video

222/Interscope On TikTok, Maroon 5's Adam Levine is asking fans to share their own "Beautiful Mistakes" -- named after the title of the band's latest hit -- so he can check them out and feature them on his own page. To kick things off, he shared his own beautiful, yet stomach-churning, mistake. "When we did the video for 'Beautiful Mistakes,' Randy's Donuts made all these custom donuts for us, and they were so delicious and I had to take a bite of one during every take," Adam explains in a TikTok video. In the video, Adam rides a vintage convertible through the skies over L.A. When he passes Randy's Donuts, an L.A. landmark, the skies magically fill with donuts, and you can see Adam grabbing one and eating it. "I took so many bites -- and we have footage, actually -- I had about, probably, collectively, about 15 donuts at the end of the day," Adam continues. "And it was really bad...In ways I will not tell you, but you can imagine." Copyright © 2021..

Lil Nas X answers children’s questions about what it means to come out of...

Rich Fury/Getty Images Lil Nas X explained what it means to come out as gay in a candid conversation with two of his youngest fans. Appearing in the Wednesday episode of Arts & Raps, the "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" singer answered a bevy of questions from show stars Dilan and Zaria as the three painted portraits. One of the most meaningful moments occurred when Lil Nas X was asked to explain what coming out of the closet means. "It means you're like, 'Hey everybody, I'm this thing, and you guys didn't even know that, but now you know,'" the Grammy winner, who came out in June 2020, reflected. However, the terminology was still lost on the young hosts, with Dilan revealing his own "closet story" -- where he locked his brother in the closet, and said with a straight face, "And we close the door and blink the lights on and off, and then say '666' or 'Bloody Mary.' And... [my brother] swore he saw something." Without missing a beat..
